Neurodiversity is both a philosophy and an emerging civil rights movement. Acknowledging the wide range of human neurologies and understanding the challenges of brain difference is the key to neurodiversity. Participants in this workshop will become more aware of the vast array of brain differences and cultivate an appreciation of the many kinds of talents that can be nurtured in the classroom and work environment.
